The Sweetest Get Well Card

"I hope you get better Shelli.
I wish there was no such thing as cancer.
Because then you would not be sick and you(r) spine would not be broken.
I will pray for you Shelli."
                             -Robbie (age 9)

This brought tears to my eyes as I read it aloud to his mother and sisters. Robbie, who has Asperger's Syndrome and doesn't draw, nevertheless wrote this all on his own, by himself, and drew a cat on the front for me. Such insight and a tender heart in such a young boy, echoing the sentiments of us all in wishing there was no such thing as cancer!
